The pair have been collaborating for a year in delivering advanced encryption, compliance, information assurance and SaaS security solutions across the UK.

Under the Bridgeway brand they will continue to develop relationships with customers and vendors delivering a stronger support infrastructure.

Vioptim's managing director, John Howell, becomes a director of Bridgeway Security

"Our focus continues to be on ensuring customers' information remains available, confidential and trusted," he commented. "By combining the respective strengths of our companies' sales and support teams, we're better positioned to deliver both on-premise and cloud security solutions to organisations from SMEs to enterprises."

Jason Holloway, founder of Bridgeway Security, continues as CEO. 

"Having worked in partnership on a number of very successful projects, this merger is a natural progression for both businesses," said Holloway. "It's also a step forward in terms of service to our customers as it extends our reach across a wider range of solutions, enhances account management, and deepens our support capabilities."

Alistair Mutch, UK & Ireland director at MobileIron, a vendor partner of both VARs, said: "Bridgeway has a remarkable track record for customer satisfaction, and this merger will further extend the company's capabilities, giving them greater reach and resources to develop and realise customer opportunities.""

"We are seeing a strong rate of growth for our MDM and app control solutions in the market, continued Mutch. "I think the merger will consolidate Bridgeway's position as a key UK partner for MobileIron."

The new company also works with vendors including, MIMECast, LogLogic, ScanSafe, Outpost24 and MetaCompliance.
